What is a Crew House in 2019

Posted on: 04/09/2018

Crew House is a term used frequently within the Yachting Community. For those of you who are new to the industry and want to know more we have created a page on our website with the most relevant and up to date information. 

We offer two types of crew housing in Fort Lauderdale. Budget Crew Housing and Professional Crew Housing. We have seen a great need for both options and find that the crew who rent from us really like having options to choose from. We know everyone has a different weekly budget, so we enjoy being able to accommodate everyone in Fort Lauderdale.

Our Budget-Friendly Crew Housing in Ft. Lauderdale, offers 2-3 per room and a more basic house. The Smart Move Crew Houses are either 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms or 4-bedroom houses, so, as you can imagine at any time, a house that has 4 bedrooms can sleep up to 10 people. This is great for networking but can be overwhelming to those studying or looking for a more tranquil experience.

This is where our Professional Crew Housing comes in. For those that are looking for something more, we have our Professional Crew Housing offering a higher standard of living, with more space, privacy and comfort. The Yachties choosing Professional, can afford to spend a little more on their weekly rentals. In this type of crew house, you will find no more than 6 per house and only 2 people per room. Each crew member gets a locker to secure all their belongings. These crew houses are up-market, spacious and have amenities that our Budget Crew housing wont offer.

With all Smart Move Crew Houses the basics are the same. All crew houses are cleaned weekly and supplies are replenished. Free Wi-Fi, cable and laundry facilities are available. Rent is paid by the week and ranges from $165/week to $240/week depending on the house and the bedroom.

Staying in a crew house is a must for anyone new to the yachting or maritime industry. When you get onboard a vessel, you will be sharing your living space with others, so crew housing is a great introduction to shared living.
